2 rides 5 crashes
« on: April 21, 2008, 11:44:16 AM »
 So I have gone crash free for a while now....until last weekend

2 rides / 5 crashes

nothing more than bruises/scratches after hitting tree/falling on 3 rocks/endoing/landing on falling tree after hitting tree on other side of trail

and 1 racking of the goodies

all in all it was a good weekend

could have been caused by riding an unfamiliar bike.
My bike is more than a toy; it's my vessel.

or by not looking at the trail in front of me (3 of 5 of the crashes)  haha

i almost wanted to scrape my right leg on the ground when I finished the ride so that I didn't have a limb that was left out of the scratched and bruised extravaganza

Crashing gives you character. Although my preferred type are the silly ones that have everyone including myself laughing..not gashed and hemorrhaging blood, but it comes with the territory..:D
When you ride so far out that you hear no traffic, no people...nothing..

zen.

I want a report on the bike!  How was it?  How was the suspension?  Details man, details.

I have to vouch for FACTORe on the first fall.  There was a sniper in the woods.  I was right behind him, i saw a flash, i heard a BAM, and there he was on the ground.  Clear out of the blue!!!!  He was down.  Only a sniper could have caused it.
